Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Royalties for Real Estate Virtual Tour

I guess this is the opportunity to say how awesome UE4 is, even paid for it before the subscription became free. Keep it up Epic People.

Anyway, I went through most of the documentation about virtualization and royalties and I understand software developers selling the virtualization software don't need to pay royalties.

I can't seem to find anything matching our case. My company has a Real Estate side and may want to use Unreal Engine to generate still images, videos, and create a virtual tour.

It's clear the company does not need to pay royalties for still images and videos, but if they wanted to create a virtual tour application for real estate agents to demo it to potential customers, will they need to pay anything at all?

Thanks for being a long time supporter.

I don't think that's quite right. If there is a virtualization product that is sold on iOS or something, a royalty is owed. If it's a custom work-for-hire project for a client, no royalty is owed on those work-for-hire fees.

It's clear the company does not need to pay royalties for still images and videos, but if they wanted to create a virtual tour application for real estate agents to demo it to potential customers, will they need to pay anything at all?

Agreed about still images and video. Regarding a virtual tour, it sounds like that virtual tour would have no revenue so there would be no royalty.

It seems I made a mistake, I meant to write "software developers being paid to create virtualization software". Thanks for the prompt answer! It seems I have a reason to use Unreal Engine at work. :)
